White pine oil is a yellow essential oil with a sweet woody-pine aroma, derived from the twigs and bark of the Eastern White Pine (Pinus strobus). We use this ingredient as a fragrance component in some of our products.
Pinus strobus is a pine native to eastern North America, often found in sandy or well-drained soils. These trees can live for centuries and grow to heights of over 50 meters, providing the tallest canopies in the eastern North American forests. As well as being used for timber, Eastern White Pines are a popular choice for Christmas trees as they retain their needles long after being harvested. The fragrant bluish-green needles are known to be very high in vitamin C and along with the bark, twigs and resin, can be steam-distilled to produce pine essential oil.
